Gavan offers me a Pact … submit for a year or lose my legacy. If I accept, will I be sharing the bed of a man or a beast?

“The Pact” is the second book in the ‘Syndicate Masters’ series by Delta James. Strong characters, drama, intrigue, passion and the paranormal excitement of shifters combine in this fast-paced story. You can read and enjoy this book as a standalone.

Lord Gavan Drummond is the head of the Gallogass Syndicate in Scotland. Although it’s a mafia and a criminal organization, he has his own strict moral code of right and wrong. He and his clan also have a huge ancestral secret . And, along with his vast array of properties, legitimate businesses, and not so legitimate businesses, he owns the majority interest in Club Termonn, a BDSM lifestyle club. Blaise Munro was orphaned when an accident killed her parents. She was raised by her maternal grandfather. He raised her with love and with his knowledge of the family business, the Kilted Fire distillery is on Isle of Skye in Scotland, which is also where Castle Cat-Sith is located – the ancestral home of Gavan Drummond.

A dramatic event in her life connects Gavan and Blaise in unexpected and complicated ways that increase the attraction between them from a low-key simmer to a blazing inferno. Additional drama reveals itself as unknown persons are after Blaise and her distillery. She and Gavan enter into an intense D/s relationship with wildly rough (but consensual) physical intimacy. I thought a few of the secondary characters were very good, particularly Vera, Hamish and Dougal. There is a nice balance of the predictable and the unexpected. There are also little entertaining nuggets of familiarity when mention is made of places or characters from other books in other series by the author. I’m looking forward to meeting the next Master in the Syndicate.

Oh, My Roared: Paranormal Dating Agency #12

Francesca Virgata wants a mate. She longs for the perfect kind of love her parents had. There’s only one problem, she has zero prospects. Thankfully, she’s heard of Gerri Wilder who promises to make all her mating dreams come true.

Theo and Marcus are best friends and share everything, even women. So when they both fall for Francesca, it’s only natural they have a friendly competition over who can get the girl. After some thought, and a hot little interlude, they realize she shouldn’t choose one over the other, they should work together to make the perfect triad. A lion, a tiger and a bear, oh my!

There has been talk of abuse in Francesca’s pride and she won’t tolerate it. She’ll fight tooth and claw to ensure all members are safe. But when her brother turns on her, who will protect her? Theo and Marcus will do anything for her, but it might be easier to let them both go than to choose only one of the men she’s come to love.

Well this book was all kinds of awesome! I absolutely loved Lance and Anna’s story! It was so cute! Sighs, I really need me one of these girls. Seriously where are these busty shy hot freaks at? Like hello this bear is single and honest lol. The chemistry was off the charts! But that’s what you come to expect from a C.D. Gorri book! Beyond stellar stories with some of the best down to earth characters that share some of the most wholesome family values and fellowship coupled with hot steamy sex haha. Sandra and Glenn.... those two can go fly a kite, let me tell ya! I am very curious though what happened to Brenda? Will we see more of her? Pam after all was super hated and she was so misunderstood and lovable. Now she’s one the cherished mates of the series. Will the same happen to Brenda? Also wow we got news on the Hank front!! We now know what kind of shifter he is! Mums the word! No spoilers here! But I’m totally shocked. I don’t think it’s been mentioned unless I totally missed it in a previous book but I’m so looking forward to more from Gorri’s Paranormal Dating series. She truly has a wonderful grasp on how Gerri should act. I absolutely love her rendition of Gerri. It’s spot on perfect. This book was so pleasing. The Tigers started it all for me and I’ve never looked back. I’ve said this so many times. Gorri has so much talent. Stumbling upon her books has been such a blessing to me and escaping into her worlds have given this old soul and heart a break from the beating it’s taken. I know that when I pick up any of her books I don’t have to know what it’s about. I just know I will smile, laugh and sometimes even cry. She’s just simply amazing. Start from the beginning to truly enjoy this book. Even though it’s a standalone there are people mentioned that have come before Lance and Anna. So you might as well read the others first and be up to snuff on your Tigers! This book, like all the Tigers... is special. It gets 5 cosmic stars 💥💥💥💥💥and 2 radiant stars ✨✨from me!

Annalia and Lance are perfect together. It just takes her a while to accept that any man would want her, with her curly hair and curves. Lance is shocked that she is his one true mate. Gerri Wilder does not make mistakes though, and the Universe and Fate just needed her help to get them together. Eventually Anna realises that he loves her, all of her, and that her sister and brother-in-law were using her for her inheritance to live their lavish lifestyle at her expense. A very good judgement scenario in the end and Anna gets her own back on her so-called family. A brilliant story, and certainly worth 5 stars. Recommended reading.

Javier was a bit of a jerk at first, I really didn’t like the way he acted when he met Pamela for the first time. Pamela has a very traumatic past that left her with low confidence and nearly broken in spirit. A lot of the of the book is devoted to her inner battle to overcome what she had been through. I was greatly impressed with ability to find help and get herself back on track. It got more interesting in the last chapter when a really surprising and totally unexpected plot twist shows up. I would recommend reading this story.

I enjoy Ms. Gorri’s books, and I’ve read all 3 books in this group, as well as many of her other books. The stories are light but fun, and would make for enjoyable reading and a 4 star rating (good but not outstanding) except for one very annoying thing that was especially noticeable in this book. It’s full of technical writing errors: grammar errors, punctuation errors, sentence fragments, and just plain typos (for example “beats” instead of “beast” at least twice). There’s at least one problem on almost every page, to the point where it’s just sloppy and unprofessional. I can deal with a few problems, no book is perfect, but this many just keeps dragging me out of the story, and it’s very frustrating. Although I enjoy her stories, I’m seriously considering not buying any more until she hires a competent proofreader. If writing issues don’t bother you it’s a fun book. But if you’re like me and the errors take away from your reading enjoyment, think twice before you buy this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK Shifter Romance
Reviewed in the United States on July 26, 2020
This is an OK shifter romance, but it was just too short to have as much character development as I like. I needed more backstory on both Brayden and Jessica. It gets 3 stars from me.

I liked both Brayden and Jessica, but it seemed to me that they were more in lust than in love. I get that shifters recognize their mates, and that sex is important to them -- but it just seemed like they needed to spend a little more time together before jumping into sex.

I know that the author wrote this series as her contribution to Milly Taiden's Paranormal Dating Agency world, but she included one thing that bothered me. In all of Milly's PDA books, it mentions that Gerri Wilder is a shifter, but none of them have ever said exactly what kind of shifter she is. Yet, in the books in this series, the author notes several times that Gerri is a wolf shifter. I'm not sure I believe that, since Milly's books have made a point of never revealing Gerri's shifter type.

My rating system is below.
1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it.
2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws.
3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating.
4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one.
5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.

I dont't want to give away the story, but you will not be disappointed and cannot wait to read more about this clan.

I am voluntary leaving this review for this ARC copy of the story

Gerri Wilder does it again & on the 1st meeting too.

Elissa was walking along the street in the rain after ditching her creepy blind date; when along comes Gerri who not only offers her a ride but, possibly a new job or a mate too.

Hunter was having not only problems with his tiger self but some Pride stuff too. He called upon Gerri to see if she could find him a mate. He didn’t think that on the 1st try that he would find his mate until he smelled something very good.

This book does have a tiny good vs bad plot & some sex scenes in it. But,, to find out more about Hunter & Elissa’s mating you’ll have to read the book

I truly loved how the story all came together from the beginning to the end. I mean with everything that you read everything makes sense and comes together in the end. Of course we all have our Gerri quirks and our shifter drama. Dang males always thinking they are more powerful than someone bigger than them or even smaller than them.

The one thing I must disagree with was how agreeable Lissa was with everything being a human and not knowing anything about the shifter world. Needed a little more fight, not sex with that.

Until Next Time... Tabi

Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2019
I am a huge fan of the PDA books. To have one of my favorite authors join the series, bonus. Elissa is having one helluva night. On her walk home, in the rain, she is picked up by none other than Ms. Wilder. This will change her forever change her life. She takes the news of shifters being real very well. But being the mate of one, an alpha tiger on top of it, is a bit harder for her to believe. She and Hunter definitely have chemistry, but she wonders if he needs her to secure his position. Finding his mate would solve all of Hunter's problems. The Pride quickly accepts Elissa as their 'Nari' and things seem to be going well. But there is one among them that is not happy with this new arrangement. When the couple is gifted with something magical, it will bring the two even closer. A bit of mystery, a little action and a whole lot of heat. An of course, a HEA. Ms. Gorri has done it again. I'm hoping to learn more about Brayden in the near future. I would love to learn his backstory. I received an advanced copy and this is my voluntary review.

Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4: Lure of the Tiger

Ruthless assassin or irresistible bodyguard?

Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn’t trust humans. He doesn’t trust destiny either — not even when it sends him the one woman capable of saving his tormented soul. But there’s more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces gather on sunny Maui, intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers. Before he knows it, Cruz becomes the last line of defense between pure evil and the sapphire — and the only one capable of saving his destined mate’s life.

Footloose and carefree? Not anymore. Jody Monroe, pro surfer, is a woman on a mission — until an unknown gunman turns her world upside down. She escapes thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger with haunting, yellow-green eyes who arouses all her fears — and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody’s life isn’t the only thing on the line — her heart is, too.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Lure of the Tiger Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4
by Anna Lowe
What a phenomenal story! First I must say I absolutely enjoy reading paranormal shifter romance especially ones that involves, Tigers, Dragons, Wolves, Vampires and my most favorite Bear Shifters, so this book by Anna Lowe I really love reading. I know I'm telling my age but this series remind me of Magnum P.I. with Tom Selleck, oh my, if this became a TV series I would plant myself in front of the television and not move until it was over and I would record it so I could watch it again. I'm always excited to read this series. This is the fourth book written in this series. It features Cruz Khala andJody Monroe with the rest of the gang from the three previous books of the ALOHA SHIFTERS. Cruz is a Tiger shifter who is graceful, ruthless, gorgeous, sexy with yellow-green eyes. He is also gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective but there is a problem he doesn’t put much trust in humans. Jody is a pro surfer, a very reluctant model who is strikingly beautiful, footloose, carefree and a woman on a mission. But unknown to her there are two assassin and one is Cruz. The story has magic, lots of adventure and humor. I love and enjoy the books that are written by Anna Lowe. She is very talented and gifted author, she creates enjoyable,lovable,sexy characters and magical, exciting worlds. Anne stories are always humorous and magical which will entice and weave a AWESOME tale that pulls you into the adventures with her relatable characters. I know we all just fall in love with a hero that's irresistible with his tormented soulful eyes that just melts our heart. Oh yeah the heroine we all appreciated a strong woman who is capable of fighting and loving along side her man but when there's danger around, she knows she can let her man protect her and still be admired and loved the love her life, because he knows she won't just rush into the fray and endanger them both by just hoping for the best. That's just the some of what I enjoy and love while reading Anna books. I really enjoy her love scenes she has a talent for writing blazing hot sensual sex scenes, she ramps up the tension between Jody and a Cruz before during and after they make love. I enjoy when you can laugh and smile while reading the sexual scenes even through its can be very explicit. Because this allows me a clear sense of the love between the hero and heroine and to enjoy it without feeling I'm reading porn. Anna Lowe stories JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling series set on the tropical shores of Maui. I have love reading each story they are exciting page-turner that's packed with action, emotion, and romance! Paranormal Shifters twist of course its has steamy hot, alpha shifters! The story has a depth of emotion which tugs at my heart. This book captured my attention quickly from beginning to end. Each story has its own jewel that comes with its own danger. The couples are made up a Shifter from the ALOHA SHIFTERS and their mate has the power to control the jewel and each jewel is calling to the other jewels. Cruz and Jody the story Lure of the Tiger. This leads the series into the story we are all excited to read Silas story. The entire series is one that just gets more exciting as we read each story they have kept me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy reading Paranormal Shifter Romance then you will love this series.


5.0 out of 5 stars Tiger meets his Mermaid
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2017Verified Purchase
Grumpy Cruz finds his mermaid! Cruz was a hard nut to crack. He's always been a gruff man that doesn't trust well. In prior books, he is always the sullen one that doesn't like or want to be around people. This book gave a new view of him. I liked this Cruz the best of all versions we have seen.
Cruz is holding on to his past. Jody is pure sunshine. No matter how bad the stakes or the obstacles, she shines and reaches out to the future by living now. It might be that opposites attract, Cruz's dark and stormy persona and Jody's bright and happy attitude. This book definitely brought out the best. The only sad part is that with one more shifter finding his love, the closer the series is to the end.

We also get a bigger teaser about Silas.. happy jazzy hands! There is enough meat on the teases to make you want to beg for Silas' story. Which I have been waiting for since the very first book.

While this is part of the Aloha Shifters series, it can be read as stand alone without missing anyt

5.0 out of 5 stars Taming the Tiger
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2017Verified Purchase
I don’t know anyone that has read at least one book in these series that has not been hooked. You can not help but fall in love with Silas, Kai, Boone, Hunter, and Cruz. Not to mention the wonderful women they bring into the story. This story is about Cruz. I don’t know about you but I have so been looking forward to reading about Cruz and the woman the author would chose for this grumpy angry tiger.

I did do the whipsersync with this book. Truly love the narrator. The narrator did a wonderful job and done a great job pulling you into the story. I did find though that the audios with this series does not always match up with the book. From time to time there where sentences that were reworded, words left out, or even a sentence is complete added. Does not take a way from the story though.

Cruz Khala was this sexy tiger shifter but he was grumpy, angry, and seemed to hate every thing, especially human’s. As we get to know Cruz we do get to understand him and can not blame him. The anger he carries around is slowly killing his spirit. He believes human’s were responsible for his parents death. To carry this around for years and long for the day you can venge your families death has to be a heavy weight to bare.

Jody Monroe was this amazing woman. She was a pro surfer and I just loved her free spirit. I also loved the love she had for her family. She would do anything for them even if it meant doing a modeling gig to make some money to help them out. I am sure she never dreamed she would be on someone’s hit list. She was the type of person you feel in love with, not want to kill.

The one thing I love about this story is that we get to see the battle between animal and man. Though Cruz and his tiger are one, they are two different spirits that share on body. We get to see Cruz inwardly argue with his tiger. The animal was the smart one in this story. He knew the moment he saw Jody she was not a killer. Cruz on the other hand was facing this inward battle.

I know this had to be a hard decision for Jody to make on trusting Cruz. I love how she went with her heart and her gut. I also loved how she really got under Cruz skin. He was finding it so hard to resist her.

There is danger all around. The jewel that Jody was suppose to do a photo shoot with could be a one of the Spirit Stone. This meant the danger Jody was in could be more serious then they had thought.

One of my many favorite scenes in the story was one of the photo shoots. Lets just say things get pretty hot and steamy. I sorry want to know more about that scene you will have to read the book. Trust me when I say this book has some many wonderful parts.

By the end of the book, though I love how it ended I was screaming at Anne Lowe. Please tell me that is not who she is going to put with Silas. No no, no!!!!

This truly was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

This was a book I have been waiting to read until I could get it in audio also. It was so worth the wait. It is well written, and I was anxious to see where the author would take this human haters story! I think she did an excellent job taking us on this twisty journey with these characters. The storyline is well paced, you immediately fall in love with Jody, but Cruz your first thought is how can this guy redeem himself! But it was a nice journey and the narration was beautifully done!

Scrooged Over (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 29)

Priscilla Bryant thought being matched by the famous Gerri Wilder would make her romantic dreams come true. She’s wrong. So wrong. The shifter she’s been matched with is a complete jerk and no matter how handsome he is, she never wants to see his face again. Talk about being  scrooged over.

Lake Walker knows that sexy Priscilla is his mate the moment he sees her. He can’t wait to get the curvy goddess naked. What he doesn’t understand is why she hates his guts. That’s not supposed to happen with your perfect mate. She’s a handful, but he’s ready to fight for the woman he knows is his.

It’s not every day Gerri Wilder’s told she made a mistake. Okay, more like never. But it seems someone’s trying their damndest to not only keep them apart but doesn’t mind if one dies along the way. This is one time seeing is not believing. Will Lake and Priscilla get wrapped up in danger or can Gerri put a bow on this relationship before it’s too late?

Every year this author works her Christmas magic and brings us a fantastic holiday story we don’t want to miss. So much action, suspense and steamy moments that lead to love with the help of a certain silver wolf. I love this newest addition to the series and how we don’t really know people the way we think we do. The characters went through a lot in a few short pages, but they left their mark on me all the same. I hope the author brings us many more PDA books in the new year, and maybe a little history lesson from the famous mate maker. No matter what she sends my way next I’m sure it’s going to be amazing.

This story starts out a little differently than the others as Gerri has already set up Lake and Priscilla on their first blind date. We start out as the date is beginning but everything seems to go wrong and it appears that Gerri has lost her touch. Little does Priscilla know that the person she is on a date with is not Lake at all but someone trying to keep them apart.

As I am a twin myself I, I can easily see someone not being able to tell twins apart. I really felt for Priscilla and loved this twist to the story.

It is an amazing read and I highly recommend buying to see the twists and turns this takes for Priscilla and Lake when they finally meet.
